Pinot Noir, Gust, Petaluma Gap, CA, 2017

$38.95 Excl. tax

Scents of sassafras, cinnamon, and cedar are breathtaking. This well-balanced, velvet-lined Pinot Noir generates earthy notes that evolve as the palate opens up to a patch of wild strawberries and a field of sweet tobacco.

Gust is the second-generation offshoot of Sonoma’s Cline Family Cellars. The project of Megan Cline and Hilary Cline, these wines were launched to tap the potential of California’s most exciting new wine appellation: the Petaluma Gap, recently recognized as superb for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Syrah.

Owing to a mixture of foresight and luck, the Cline’s father, Fred, planted vineyards in the Petaluma Gap in the late 1990s, before the area gained grape growing renown. Cline has historically been associated with Zinfandel and Rhone varieties, but as the second generation came of age, they gravitated toward cooler-climate wines, and wanted to lavish the sites in the region with the attention they deserve, farming them at the highest level and making the most special wines possible.

Thus: Gust. The name is meant to convey the atmosphere of the Petaluma Gap, where, like clockwork, morning fog gives way to blustery winds. But is also a representation of the energy of the new generation. A breath of fresh air.
